New Reference Book on Materials in Dental Applications

Materials Science for Dentistry published by Woodhead Publishing has established itself as a standard reference for undergraduate and postgraduate courses in dentistry. The book differs from all existing textbooks in the field, with the goal of insight into the way materials work in dentistry, emphasizing explanation of the physical and chemical processes underlying behaviour. It avoids reference to products in favour of fundamental concepts that will be of value over a full working lifetime in all classes of material and their use.

It provides a fundamental understanding of the materials on which dentistry depends, covering those aspects of structure and chemistry which govern the behaviour and performance of materials in use. Particular materials discussed include gypsum, polymers, acrylic, cements, waxes, porcelain and metals.

Other chapters review topics such as surfaces, corrosion, mixing, casting, cutting and bonding as well as mechanical testing. This edition, which adds a chapter on further aspects of mechanical testing, has been extensively revised with, for example, new material on condensation silicone and phosphate-bonded investment chemistries, mixing, MTA™ and alternative radiographic imaging techniques.

Now in its ninth edition, Materials Science for Dentistry continues its reputation as the most authoritative available reference for students of dentistry. It is also a valuable resource for academics and practitioners in the field
